Immortal is a romantic suspense novel set in the present day. Octavius Kalman is a wealthy international wine merchant who relives his three hundred year life as a reluctant pawn in many historical events while in conflict with a mortal enemy. He is coping with porphyria, the genetic blood disease responsible for the vampire legends, and grieving over the loss of his one true love when she unexpectedly enters his life again—or does she? Along his dramatic journey, he is saved by his love of music and dance, becoming a key figure in the development of tango from its birth on the seaboards of Europe and South America more than 150 years ago, to its sensual presence throughout the world today.
With Immortal, J.E. Mayer has created a unique blend of suspense, romance, time travel, and vampirism. An intense and fascinating read.
